Fruit Salad

This recipe comes to us via Mom's Pantry friend: Gail Vernon-Musgrove. Thanks Gail! (she warns that she makes this on holidays, so it makes a large batch)

Fruit Salad

Ingredients:

1- pint of fresh Strawberries washed and sliced.
1- pint of fresh blueberries washed and drained.
2-3 large-Banana's Peeled and sliced thin.
2-Large cans of Fruit Salad drained ( in it's own syrup )
1-2 cans of Mandarin Oranges drained.
1-Jar of Marachino Cherries drained. ( set the juice aside for later)
1- Regular container of Sour Cream.
1/3-1/2 cup of Splenda or Sugar. ( Optional)
1-2 Bags of Miniature Marshmallows . ( I used the colored ones or holiday ones
depending on what the holiday is )
and last Candy Sprinkles. ( Optional )


In a very large bowl add all your fruit starting with the cans of fruit cocktail. ( I use my
huge stainless salad mixing bowls )


Add your Sour Cream and gently stir making sure the fruits are covered.

Fold in 1-2 bags of the Miniature Marshmallows depending on how much you like

Marshmallows.

If it's not sweet enough for you , you can add the splenda or sugar. ( I normally just add

about 2 TBS. of Splenda )

Add the Maraschino Cherry Juice about half of it.


Blend this all till it looks nice and creamy and top off with some candy sprinkles after it

has been refrigerated.

Refrigerate for an hour and then serve.
